A roast by any other name....is still a roast.
Welcome to another edition of Um, Um Geeky Good, a roast of a
Chris recently told us that he and his wife went to Mexico on a cruise and that they left out of San Diego on a fun ship. Obviously, that's not what happened.
About a month ago, a few of you visited me here in Cowtown as part of the Virtual Road Tour (see sidebar) sponsored by Humor Bloggers Dot Com. Some of you apparently got lost here in Texas and have not been seen or heard from since. Being the super-sleuth that I am, I've discovered that Chris was one of the lost bloggers.
We apparently misplaced him at the zoo on day two of our tour. He was enthralled with the white tigers and was separated from the group. Some guy that looked like Chris joined our group so we didn't catch on until it was too late.
Chris boarded a bus and ended up a few miles south at a local brewery. He took the tour and sampled some ugly dog beer...er.. I mean butt ugly beer. No, that's not right either. Never mind. Let me check the website. OK. Ugly Pug.
Anywhatsit, he imbibed with a bit too much enthusiasm and he fell asleep out back. A few bums took mercy on him and shoved him into the cab of an 18-wheeler heading south."Yes, Ms. Geek. Chris rode with me and the boys south on I-35 until we had to...er...make a pit stop."
When they stopped to use one of these:
Chris made a run for it. (I think he was very tired of smelling....er....cow.)
He eluded me for awhile but I found him at the Blue Bell factory in Brenham, Texas, sampling Blue Bell ice cream. I have no idea how he got there. Poor Chris did not realize he was lactose-intolerant. He had a VERY rough night. I gave him some Ex-Lax and went to get my own samples of ice cream.
Yum! Southern Blackberry Cobbler ice cream, where have you been all my life?
While I was enjoying my treat, Chris disappeared.
Don't worry. I found him.
Fortunately, some of his former students recognized him hitchhiking and picked him up in their car. They headed south.
Being young men and women with champagne tastes on a beer budget, they were making a side trip to Shiner. There just happens to be a brewery in Shiner.
Poor Chris. You already know what happens when Chris visits breweries.
Yep. That's right. Shoved into the cab of an 18-wheeler, he finally made it across the border. Si Habla Taco?
After fighting off a few thieves and drug cartels here and there, Chris enjoyed a nice vacation in Mexico. Somehow, he ended up with a terrible sunburn.
Finally, his wife arrived to pick him up and return him north of the border.
Now THAT'S what really happened, folks!
By the way, this headline from Chris's hometown got my attention:
KIDS MAKE NUTRITIOUS SNACKS
Oh, my, my, Chris. Is that why attendance is down at your school?
Chris is a great writer. For putting up with this debacle, Chris is welcome to display the roasted badge on his blog. Check him out over at Maurgeritaville.
Yes, there are other bloggers that got lost in Texas. When I find them, they're toast (pun intended)!
